Eddie was a proud member of Company A, 1/35 Infantry, 4th Infantry Division. He was killed with ten others over a nameless little hill northwest of Landing Zone Mary Lou, Quang Tin Province, 10/9/67

I remember him as short, with red hair - just an average guy trying to do his best and get back home.
Eddie died with several others, right above me after our part of the platoon was overrun. Tony Taschler put a rosary in his hand the next morning.
Rest in peace, Eddie.
